It's really hard to believe that this is the 6th Christmas that Tori has been home, and the 5th for Julia and Ben. Somedays it just seems that I was working through their paperwork.
Today was the kids' Christmas party at JD's work, which is always exciting since it's the Santa viewing of the year. Elijah ran right up there and climbed on his lap. Although we don't "do" Santa, Elijah somehow heard that Santa comes down chimneys and wanted the details of how he pulls that off. He then told us that he really wants to try coming down a chimney also.
The 12 and under crowd all get a present from Santa. Elijah got a package of little tractors - talk about sealing the deal on him liking the guy in the red suit.
(I would have asked Santa for magic cough syrup - I have been coughing for a week straight and nothing works.)
